Wanted. Saitek Logitech clamp mount bracket

Recommended Posts

I am searching for one or two of the clamps that mount throttle quadrants and/or Saitek panels to a desk.  If anyone has a failed or worn out quadrant or panel and still has the clamp I would appreciate hearing from you.  I believe the same clamps can be used with both quadrants and panels as I believe the spacing of the bushings is the same.

I have one mount for the Quadrant and have 3 mounts for the panels like switch or radio. I'm in Texas. Ill look in my box of parts to see if I have any others.  Josh

Thanks Josh.  What I need is quadrant clamps, and perhaps the associated small Phillips head screws.  One task I am trying to accomplish is moving a Saitek Multipanel from the top of my Honeycomb yoke to the desktop between my yoke and Saitek USB quadrant.  I would need to mount the Multipanel to a quadrant clamp.  You may be able with the panel mounts I see above verify the hole spacing is consistent with spacing available on the clamps. 

Then, I have also now have a second USB quadrant, and a Saitek TPM quadrant. but no clamps.  So for others seeing this, I am looking for a total of three clamps. 

My desk is primarily a home office desk, so I am not able to just screw to the desk.

I would just use the panel enclosure and screw thru the plastic and into the side of the usb quadrant.and then use the quadrant clamp to  secure both. Use short screws. The clamp holes don't line up with the panel holes for your info.  Josh

Seems like a great idea. Only the sides of the quadrant have no bushings to use and I do not wish to drill into the quadrant.  Resell value after the Honeycomb quadrant becomes available, alas likely delayed. To be sourced from China.....  I'd be better off to find a clamp and drill into it to match the panel enclosure, so it seems.

If you need the parts let me know.  Also heavy duty velcro works well securing the quadrents to the desk and taping together the two together  as that how I used my old Saitek quadrants.  Velcro is what I use now to hold down my VF TQ6 and I have no issues. Josh
